"Leanomics", a new 21st century form of 'economics', will eventually replace "Poweromics". "Poweromics" is what we currently have (where position/power are directly used to serve the self interest and greed of the few in positions of 'power'). Such systems have had their day and will be replaced by a new form of 'leadership' and an expanded form of 'economics' - ones intrinsically more capable of creating much better, holistic and sustainable outcomes for everyone (and based on 'values' such as trust, honour, responsibility, respect).
The internet is rapidly enabling a new world, which will also change the world of 'leadership', 'politics' and 'economics' for the better, as soon as more people take responsibility and show sufficient interest to make it so.

So how were people hoodwinked into thinking these 'leaders' were the promoters of 'prudence'? Were people really taken in by it all, or just continuously 'pushed the idea' via traditional 'independent media' exercising their own brand of Poweromics themselves.
The internet will change all of this - thank goodness. But the real problem for the UK is going to be finding hard working innovate people still prepared to invest time, energy and resources on a rudderless ship that's going backwards, leaking everywhere and about to sink.
